Greetings all!!

I have a factory alarm/keyless entry that worked perfectly until I (stupidly) left the lights on and completely killed the battery. The alarm DOES go on (light blinks) but the horn does not "chirp" on the double click for lock and when the alrm is tripped, the lights will flash but no horn.

I have tried every possible thing in the operations manual, such as setting it to manual and back to automatic but no matter what I do...no horn.

Any suggestions??

Thanks!

Unplug the security system control unit.

Underneath driver's dash above and left of brake pedal.

White box a little larger than a deck of cards, green connector.

Don't cut yourself on the brackets.

Count to 30 and plug it back in.

Known issue, service bulletin.

The alarm unit (which is a Honda Accessory, not a "factory" alarm by the way) switches modes due to electrical "noise" from the ignition switch.

The suggested repair is to replace the alarm unit, along with the glass breakage microphone (which is calibrated to the alarm unit).

The disconnect / reconnect harness connector reset should work, at least temporarily.

Cheers

Faster / easier (once you've done it once) and easier to 'splain - especially since most people don't have the accessory user's manual handy.

Manual? What Manual?
